… that today is Microwave Introduction Day? The microwave oven, for home use, was introduced by the Tappan Company on this day in 1955. The Raytheon Company had introduced microwave ovens in 1947, but they were as large as a refrigerator and too expensive for home use so, at Raytheon’s request, Tappan worked on reducing the size and cost. Today, over 90% of homes in America use microwave ovens.
